The Oregon State University Extension Service in Lincoln County provides research-based knowledge and education that strengthens our local economy, sustains natural resources, and promotes healthy communities, families, and individuals. View a listing of our educators.

Our Extension educators 'extend' the University to the community by teaching new skills and providing problem-solving based on University research. We provide education on agriculture, horticulture, forestry, youth development, family & community development, marine science, fisheries, child development, and quality child care practices.  We also provide child care referral assistance.
